Maybe you’re like me and you have a handful of websites that, if they go down, you lose money for every minute they’re down.
And it hurts. Bad. Like slamming your small toe into furniture at 10 miles per hour.
Or a kick in the nuts. Over and over.
But it doesn’t need to hurt so bad. I’ve found a nifty little (free) tool that monitors my websites for me so I can fix them quickly or turn off paid advertising when they’re down (while my web host fixes my site).
It’s called Uptime Robot and it’s totally free to monitor up to 50 (FIFTY!) websites. They send email notifications when your website is down plus they have a nifty app for your phone that beeps annoyingly if your site goes down.
(I used to hear it all the time coz my sites would go down all the time. But not anymore. Keep reading if you want to cure down time permanently…)
Also, you can set it up to email a private inbox of yours that’s only for website monitoring. That way you can set up your phone notifications to beep however you like.
Honestly, this little website (and phone app) have saved me thousands of dollars and it’s all been for free.
But lately, my websites just haven’t been going down anymore and the reason why is because I switched to reliable “WordPress Optimized” hosting that guards my website against downtime.
